Hormonal Imbalances and Stress

This is the biggest trigger of an autoimmune condition like Hashimoto’s disease because the normal functioning of the gland depends on the work of the other endocrine glands. When for example the reproductive hormones are out of balance, they will negatively affect the thyroid in women. High estrogen, low progesterone and high prolactin will actually additionally suppress the thyroid function making it underactive. High levels of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline also lower the thyroid hormones. In order to balance the hormones, you need a gentle strategy which is effective and to count on the body’s ability to maintain the hormonal balance by itself. There is an alternative solution: A non-invasive and effective treatment of hormonal imbalances is cold laser therapies like coMra, it is safe and has not any negative side effects. 

Food Sensitivity and Intolerance

Certain foods can cause sensitivity in some people and can additionally suppress the work of the thyroid. A well known intolerance towards gluten is one the most common cases of a food sensitivity compromising the thyroid. You can either have a mild form of gluten intolerance or Celiac disease which is actually allergy to gluten, but in both cases this specific protein in the conventional wheat grain called gluten mimics the properties of the thyroid hormones. The intolerance occurs when you eat wheat which has been grown with the use of aggressive chemicals and is less while consuming bio or organic grains in products without yeast. 

Leaky Gut Syndrome and Hashimoto’s

Chronic inflammation of the intestines is causing food particles entering the bloodstream which is known as leaky gut syndrome. This condition is common for most of the patients with autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s, for example. It can cause other autoimmune disorders too. The walls of the intestines become “loose” and that is causing toxins, waste materials and other substances to leak into the bloodstream causing inflammation in other parts of the body too. You can apply coMra on the abdominal area to support the recovery of the intestines. 

Viral Infections and Hashimoto’s 

Some viruses like Epstein-Barr or tick-borne infections like Lyme disease can also worsen the autoimmune response of the body causing even more irritation and inflammation. The Epstein-Barr virus is from the family of Herpes viruses which are known to stay latent in the body and become active during periods of high emotional stress or when you catch a cold. With coMra you can support both the nervous and the immune system. 

Exposure to Toxins and Heavy Metals

Toxins affect the endocrine system in women creating havoc and hormonal imbalances. Heavy metal, aggressive and harmful chemicals, environmental toxins, etc. can enter the body through daily products, food, water and air. They might be the cause of hypothyroidism and can worsen the autoimmune responses in cases of Hashimoto’s. Try to avoid endocrine disruptors as much as possible and to support the detoxification of the body by embracing a balanced and clean lifestyle.
